Large-scale custom installs, whether retrofitting a whole home with built-in speakers or adding built-in speakers to a whole new-build home project, are helped immeasurably by anything that helps keep the project on budget. These budget-conscious SC Series speakers are perfect for the job. They fit any application, from dining room to utility room, kitchen to guest bathroom, and deliver performance that's good enough for the media room, too.

Out Of The Box, Into The Wall

One-cut easy installation in existing walls or in new construction, for pros or DIYers alike. Rotating Cams ensure stable, secure, vibration-free placement with the turn of a screwdriver; no extra assembly and no additional cutting. Paint the grilles & flanges and SC Series speakers virtually disappear into your decor. Pre-Construction Brackets are also available.

Timbre Matched to other Polk speakers

The SC Series is specifically designed to accent and accompany any other Polk Audio loudspeaker. That way, you can mix-and-match them, adding them to any system or any zone, and never lose that seamless, speaker-to-speaker perfection.

Infinite Upgradability

SC Series Built-in Speakers share cutout sizes and hardware components with other Polk Audio Built-in Speaker Series, so you can more easily upgrade your built-in speakers at any time. Plus, SC Series speakers are sold as singles, so you can easily build complete systems, or add extra speakers later.

Durable, Moisture-Resistant Materials

Take great sound where it's never gone before: into extreme install locations like kitchens, bathrooms, and transitional areas like sunrooms and covered porches. Stainless steel hardware, durable materials, and a powder-coated, rust-proof aluminum grille, keep the SC Series playing for a lifetime.

Dynamic Balance Composite Material Technology

If you could tune out bad sounds before the occur, you would, wouldn't you? We did, using advanced laser technology that let us see the vibrating surface of the speaker cone on a microscopic level. We could fine-tune our materials to eliminate the cone resonances that are the root cause of loudspeaker distortion. This patented technology helps us determine the "Dynamic Balance" of high-tech materials, geometry and construction that together make a better speaker. SC Series delivers effortlessly clean and clear sound.

Silk Dome Tweeters in Aimable Swivel Housings

SC Series speakers feature a unique swivel tweeter housing. Aim these high performance, low distortion tweeters for greater accuracy and more realistic imaging.

Paintable Grilles & Flanges

Make your loudspeakers disappear completely into your decor, leaving only their Polk Audio sound behind. Powder-coated aluminum grilles are easy to paint, and give you incredible installation flexibility.

Famous Polk Dependability & Durability

Like all of our products, the SC Series uses only the best materials coupled with the most advanced manufacturing techniques on the planet. All Polk products must pass a battery of the most physically strenuous and exhaustive performance tests in the industry, including drop testing and extreme signal response testing. Polk Audio loudspeakers are built to perform for a lifetime.
